Hats are one of my favorite wardrobe essentials, especially during fall! I have grown quite the collection of fall hats over the years, but for some reason, I always justify a new one each year. I get so much wear out of them! Here you can find a roundup of the best fall hats to wear in 2020, along with my tips on how to wear and store them.
How to wear felt hats for fall
You can pretty much pair them with any casual fall look! I especially love to reach for them when my hair isn’t looking it’s best or if my roots are looking dirty. Pair your fall hat with dresses, leather leggings, or jeans.
When you add a hat to your outfit, it instantly elevated your look. So when you think your outfit is looking a little boring, add a hat! It helps to bring the whole look together.
How to style your hair with fall hats
Most of the time I wear my hair down, but I think hats also look cute with a low ponytail or bun. I like to pull some loose pieces from the front to give it an effortless look. You can get ready so quickly when doing this, so it’s perfect when you’re in a rush.
If you want to avoid flat hat hair, I also have a little hack for you to try! Part your hair the opposite direction you normally wear it. This way when you take off your hat you can flip it to the normal side and still have volume.
How to fix a bent hat
I hate when you order a cute hat and when it arrives you see it’s bent from the box. But don’t fret! You can easily fix this by running a steamer over the brim for 15-20 seconds then let it cool on a flat surface (like the floor). This reshapes the hat every time! Be careful not to burn the brim by over steaming, if just needs a little heat to reshape.
How to Store Your Hats
I store all of my hats on the wall using command hooks so there are no holes in the wall, plus it doubles as decor! I can easily move them around if I decide to rearrange the room. You can also use nails if you don’t mind the holes. I used to store them in my office stacking them on top of one another; however, I noticed I wasn’t reaching for them as much as I hoped. Now that I see all of them, I wear them so much more!

If you’re looking for a straw or summer hat, I have a roundup of my favorites here. I especially love to wear hats in the summer to protect my skin from the sun.
I know it can feel a little strange wearing something you’re not used to. I remember the first time I wore a big floppy hat I felt a little nervous that everyone would stare at it or something silly like that. If you’re new to wearing hats, don’t be! I promise anyone can rock a hat this fall.
